The Unspoken Consequences of Photojournalism

When: Saturday, April 29 @ 1:00 pm

Where: Cinema505 (505 Bloomfield Ave. Montclair NJ)

Montclair-based documentary photographer Ed Kashi and filmmaker Julie Winokur (Talking Eyes Media) are married with two children, but their work frequently puts them on the road. Last year, Kashi wrote an essay called “The Unspoken Consequences of a Photojournalist’s Life,” published in Time, that candidly explores the personal pressures of constant travel. In this conversation, Pure Nonfiction podcast host Thom Powers interviews Kashi and Winokur about balancing work and family.
